Suburban Blues

Yesterday was lovely.  Going to Megan's is like going home to me.  But today I feeling bluesy about being in the 'burbs and not the country.  I know I need to focus on making THIS space as comfy for us as I can.... and I will.  But not today.  Today I am going to wallow just a bit in this darling family being too far from me and in my being too far from some acres and woods.

It was good to be outside, even in the cold.  We all loaded up on the Kubota and headed up the road to their camp.

Oh, a hike in the woods, even a short, cold, muddy one, is good for the soul. 

Heck, maybe it's good for the soul because it IS short and cold and muddy.  Anyway, it was perfect and I am itching to go back already.  Next time, with some boots ;-)

i am back online. checking in to say i am so sorry you had another sickness roll through, but i am glad you are well. i completely and totally understand your feelings about the suburbs. i am ready to move from this urban area (that i do love) to somewhere more rural. have been for a long time. can you make where you are feel a bit more rural? i consider myself an urban homesteader. i think i remember you having a great amount of yard space (at least compared to what you get in our area). can you garden? have pets?
